value in the district attorney's office. >> reporter: a value at the center of the controversy. >> and this is really what the issue is about, fairness, as far as i'm concerned. >> understandably, it could be a financial crisis to the county. and here again, we're not out to ruin the county but out to make sure we're given the fair share. >> i spoke to the county executive, jeff smith who said that labor unions will look at the situation. he also said the worse case scenario if the district attorney violated the contract, and everybody asked for the same, millions could be at risk. >> okay, thank you so much. if you have a tip for the investigative unit, just call or send us an e-mail to the unit at nbcbayarea.com. we're turning to the coverage in boston, late this afternoon, the fbi released this video. look closely, it is the first picture of the two suspects in the boston marathon bombings. both men wearing caps and seen

6:03pm
a look at our security procedures. >> reporter: that is why the san francisco giants are ramping up their efforts to keep fans safe. starting tomorrow, fans will notice extra security measures that are normally reserved for playoff games at at&t park. what they saw in the post season and the world baseball classics just last month here, fans will be wanded as they can into the park and their bags will be inspected. >> reporter: security has been stepped up throughout the city. the san francisco police say they're paying extra attention to areas where tourists congregate. they want to make sure what took place in boston won't be repeated in san francisco. >> we're in contact with the fbi a and the east coast agencies, just trying to learn and grow in our knowledge. and so that -- we're diligent and keeping them safe.

6:05pm
disrupted the commenting of the anniversary. somebody left a canvas bag on the sidewalk, crowds gathered to mark the anniversary. with the access blocked, the crowd walked to union square and held the ceremony there. >> obviously, the suspicious package, in light of what happened in boston, erring on the side of caution as we always do the area was shut down. >> turns out the bag was harmless and contained only clothes and papers. after the streets reopened participants placed the wreath back at the fountain. and coming up at 6:30, we'll go live to boston with our own terry mcsweeney and how they are investigating. and audrie potts, who is the teen who committed suicide after being sexually assaulted.
6:06pm
tonight, the family's attorney is responding, nbc bay area has more on the accused teenagers waiting for their fate. >> reporter: well, sources say the teens are still here behind me at juvenile hall, waiting to see if the judge will let them go home on house arrest or if he will keep them here throughout the trial. meanwhile, the war of words continues outside these walls. saratoga high school is on spring break this week. but the school still issued this paper, answering the questions that the media had been asking. audrie pott's family said that the school ignored claims that audrie was being bullied. the district says they never discussed it at a meeting a year ago. the family also said the school
6:07pm
announced the daughter's death before the family even knew she was dead. but the district said that audrie's family gave permission to announce the death over the innercom. >> it caused outrage among my family. the pott family. >> reporter: the family lawyer says the four-page response has only fuelled their anger. >> i wish i could say i was surprised. i have seen this before in cases i dealt with, usa swimming, the catholic church, with boy scouts of america, even penn state. >> reporter: he said they had a chance to evaluate the incident, instead of just kicking them off the football team. >> yes, it occurred off the school property, and we admit not during school time, but the aftermath, which may have been more important, in fact we believe it was more important.
6:08pm
that is the cyberbullying. >> reporter: they face charges of districting child porn and sexual assaults. in juvenile cases there is no bail. a judge will decide whether or not to free the boys or keep them locked up until the case is settled. and the three teens could possibly be tried as adults. we're live in san jose, i'm damion trujillo. and prosecutors say christian burton was the gunman on april 2nd when a group approached boyar with the intention of carjacking him. witnesses say he was shot in the head as the suspects tried to drive off. all six suspects are young, ranging in ages to up to 13.
6:09pm
and battling over a city's roar on protesters. plus, high tech high in the air. the technology helping give the firefighters the upper hand in the fight against wildfires. and why the lunch lady won't carry a gun on campus after all. and today was day one of the warmup we have been expecting to arrive in the bay area. and still at this hour, in the upper 70s. concord, fairfield, clear skies for now. we'll see fog on the coast. but the seven-day forecast has even more warming heading our way. we'll look at that when we come right back.
6:10pm
6:11pm
in tonight's class action, clamoring to get in, a record number applied to the state's uc system, making it harder than decades to get in. there is a release of stats
6:12pm
showing a drop of out of state students, uc has been accepting more students from outside of california in recent years because they pay much higher tuition, helping to compensate for some budget cuts. and the governor wants to overhaul the way k-12 schools are funded. and a new poll shows that the majority of people in california like the idea. a poll shows that 78% of adults favor the plan to give local school districts more control on how they spend their money. 71% of adults approve of the funding to low income students. >> they really do perceive there is a difference between the school districts in wealthier areas. >> they also show modest increases in the governor's
6:13pm
approval. and the lunch lady won't pack heat after all. a controversial bill regarding the marshal program failed. the bill was introduced by assemblyman tim donnelly, after the shooting at sandy hook elementary school. he also wanted to arm teachers or the secretary or lunch secretary. but his colleagues in the senate did not agree. that bill failed to make it out of committee. and a settlement reached over one of the last lawsuits against the california high speed rail project, which was filed by the central valley farmers. it accuses the authority of violating the environmental rules. it supposedly mitigates the cultural impact and also compensates the landowners affected by the project. a judge needs to seen off on the deal. and a dry winter has fire
6:14pm
officials nervous about the fire season. they will be looking to the skies. more on the new technology helping crews on the ground. >> reporter: residents at the santa cruz mountains will all remember the 2008 summit fire. the blaze turned the picturesque hills into a quick-moving inferno. and the firefighters got a little help from above. >> we fly over the fires, giving strategic information to the incident commanders on the ground. >> reporter: the large wildfires break out, and the u.s. forest service pilots are dispatched from a modified cessna plane, they use infrared to take photos of burning areas, sometimes covering four states in a night. >> this is the aircraft that looks at the fires at night and provides maps to the incident command teams. >> reporter: before the technology, the pilots would observe fires and then land to share their observations in
6:15pm
person. later, they loaded their maps onto flash drives. >> to being able to download it on thumb drives, and tubes would be dropped about 150 feet. >> reporter: now, they equip the planes with sensors that can map them day or night. they use cellular technology. >> it helps them make better informed decisions which in turn makes us safer. >> reporter: originally developed forçó satellites, nas says the technology is find cin uses beyond fire. >> we can look at crop changes. >> reporter: but with california facing a very dry year there is a good chance the eyes in the sky will be back soon. joe rosati, jr. and rob mayeda joins us,
6:16pm
higher temperatures? >> yes, especially next week, you will think the temperatures jumped. right now, outside, mostly sunny and breezy, as we show you the view, looking across the bay. no low crowds around san francisco, the seabreeze is picking back up. in the south bay, you have mostly sunny skies. a difference based on that proximity, if you're right there near the bay, now the temperatures are cooling off quite a bit. this is an air flow pattern that is fairly moist, coming off the ocean. over the last few days, speaking of fire danger there is a dry north area, dropping the levels into the teens. not the case right now, we'll see more of a push of cooler marine air in and across the bay. and the hill tops seeing the relative humidity in the 20 to 30% range. highs close to 80, inland. hanging onto to 70s. morgan hill, still 74 degrees. and tomorrow, a repeat
6:17pm
performance. but if you're around san francisco and the coast, you hear all the talk about the warmup, close to 70 today. the real warmup for everybody is going to arrive sunday into monday, when high pressure builds in. the temperatures breaking records by monday and tuesday, so in the meantime by tomorrow morning you will see low clouds approaching the coast once again, and maybe patchy fog for the timemornings. mostly sunny skies, a few high clouds drifting in, during the afternoon. temperatures for tomorrow morning in the 50s. and then eventually by lunchtime you will see temperatures in the 70s. near 80, once again as we get through the afternoon for the tri valley, big changes taking place in the pacific as high pressure strengthens. mid-way through the weekend, we'll see the temperatures rising, the forecast including the temperatures in the mid-to-upper 80s. which would break some records. we'll walk you through the timing of when the hotter temperatures arrive, coming up in the full seven-day forecast
6:18pm
back to you. all right, thank you rob. not just for fighting pain. still ahead. the unusual new use for tylenol. i'm scott budman with the new high tech way to watch your weight. coming up, the fork that lets you know if you're eating too fast. plus, a problem with the plates. why some california drivers may not be getting what they're paying for. back in a moment.
6:19pm
6:20pm
in gilroy right now, police are searching an apartment to determine if a suspect had access to bombs and other weapons during an all-day standoff, the suspect surrendered just over two hours ago after holding a s.w.a.t.
6:21pm
team all day at the apartment complex just east of the downtown area. as police worked with the man, the county bomb squad team was seen arming a robot as you see there. the neighbors told the gilroy dispatch the suspect was being evicted and his power was turned off for weeks. the man surrendered just after 4:00 p.m. when he saw the police approach his apartment with tear gas canisters. and california lawmakers trying to get guns out of the mentally ill. they authorize $24 million over the next few years to hire more agents to seize weapons. the program checks data bases to see if people bought guns legally but are no longer permitted to own them. the figure is estimated at some 20,000 people. and tonight, anti-abortion activists vow to sue the city if they go through with a proposal regarding health clinics that provide abortion services. the city officials say the
6:22pm
buffer zone would protect the clinic patients from being harassed, something they say the measures just don't do right now. the measures include an eight-foot floating zone around the clinic. the supervisor says that establishing the zone will give clarity to the proposal and the clinic. the proponents argue it helps free speech. >> we believe at the same time it allows for free speech. >> my voice that says good morning from 8:00, is a little bit different from a voice that says good morning, even from a difference it is artificially aggressive. right now, supervisors are in support of the measure. and a new report today found mismanaged funds and millions missing from california's specialty license plate program. the audit, ordered by governor
6:23pm
jerry brown found the dmz failed to collect $22 million just in the past two fiscal year's alone. the money was supposed to benefit college groups, among other. they found the money from the 9/11 license plates intended to victims' families and police, were diverted. and i'm sam brock, immigration reform is now the buzz in washington after gun reform fails. will this be the year lawmakers get a down done? one republican senator says not if we put legalization before border security. is that what the bill does? and an explosion at a fertilizer plant in texas. and more on the victims from the boston marathon bombing. we'll be right back of the.
6:24pm
6:25pm
6:26pm
coverage of the terror in boston, just hours ago the fbi released this video and two pictures of two suspects in the boston marathon bombings. both men are wearing caps and carrying backpacks. they are seen walking towards the finish line of the marathon. now, if you recognize any of these men you are asked to send a tip at boston marathon tips, at fbi.gov.
6:27pm
now, recently the president and first lady arrived to honor those. >> nbc's terry mcsweeney has more on boston and how the city is reacting tonight. >> reporter: here in boston, three blocks from where the bombs went off, people have started a memorial which has been growing ever since it started tuesday morning. people come here to find comfort, and comfort is the reason that president obama and first lady michelle came to boston today. president obama came to boston's cathedral of the holy cross, perhaps first and foremost to comfort. he also came to rally americans, and boston's shaken spirit. >> if they sought to intimidate us, to terrorize us, to shake us from the values that deval described, the values that make us who we are as americans, well it should be clear that they picked the wrong city to do that. >> reporter: many were outside,
6:28pm
such as derek winn, from santa cruz, now a resident of boston. >> i just came here to show solidarity to boston, and those that were lost, and show them that they can attack, we're going to come back stronger than ever. >> my husband is a police officer, he volunteered today, got up at 4:30 in the morning and wanted to come in and show his support. and we were off and said we really need to be there, as well. >> reporter: many people said they had to be here for a show of strength. afterwards, those inside who said they heard the president, told me they had been comforted. >> it was far-reaching, very powerful. he brought us together as bostonians. and we have no fear. >> reporter: and by the way, the reaction to the release of the photos of the suspects here at the memorial has been muted. some people say of course, it is a good thing. but it doesn't change what those people did. in boston, terry mcsweeney, nbc
6:29pm
bay area news. >> thank you, terry. now to the latest on a developing story in texas where officials are still looking for the missing after a massive explosion at a fertilizer plant. those who saw it say they still can't believe it. it started with a fire then an explosion that practically levelled a small texas town, all happening last night in the town of west. tonight, the city's mayor says he believes that 45 to 50 were killed in the blast, because that is the number of people still unaccounted for. nbc's kevin torres has more. >> reporter: at this hour, the investigation continues. as authorities look for the victims who are still missing. it was a big plume of smoke that choked the sky and the after-effects of the blast that really bullied theñr community. rescue crews are searching for the people after the explosion. cameras were rolling and caught
6:30pm
the blast as it happened. the blast, so strong that it extended to out of the community that extends beyond the plant. several volunteer firefighters caught up in the initial explosion are now missing. the blast destroyed an area around the plant that included at least 50 homes and a nursing home which has been evacuated. >> it is highly populated. it is a neighborhood. it is -- it is devastating. >> reporter: the search for survivors is being unhampered by many of the homes and buildings. >> once they get a structure secure, then and only then are they being allowed to go in and actually search. it is difficult. >> reporter: west texas is a tight-knit community of about 120 people, all of whom are distraught about what happened here. >> this tragedy has likely hit every family and touched probably everybody in the town.
6:31pm
>> reporter: it is still too soon to know what happened. just last year, the plant was fined for safety violations. meanwhile, the elite response team has been called in to investigate. law enforcement will be on the scene overnight continuing to sift through the rubble and the community hit by the explosion, hoping to find the victims. now, back to you. okay, thank you, so much kevin. a bay area emergency responder tells us what made the fire in texas so dangerous was the chemical involved. the fire chief said that ammonia doesn't react well with water, which is what they used to try to put out the flames, when the two substances react, it causes the explosives. >> if you have the anhydrous, it will expand the vapor cloud. could that have prepared more problems that they were not
6:32pm
aware of? >> there was a chemical explosion in east palo alto, nowhere near the scale of west texas, but the plant shut down when the explosion is happened. that spark caused the chemicals to explode as they were being transferred. and the emotionally charged debate regarding guns is over. and the next issue, immigration reform which figures to be front and center on capitol hill in the coming weeks. sam brock looks at a claim from alabama senator jeff sessions that the reform is too weak to pass muster. >> yes, you know, border security will be at the heart of any border reform bill. the senator says this proposal puts legalization ahead of enforcement and takes a step back on border security from previous efforts. both of those cliaims are eithe
6:33pm
untrue or dubious, at best. as the march goes on for immigration reform in the country, the claims are flying almost as fast as the political football, even among members of the same party. republican marco rubio and his fellow members of the gang of 8 tried to get support for the measure with tough talk on border security. but so far at least one republican is not biting. >> that will give amnesty now. >> reporter: the alabama senator jeff sessions has blasted the reform package, claiming in a statement "already we know that the bill's sponsors have abandoned their promise to the american people that enforcement will come first. this bill is legalization first, not enforcement first." sessions also called the package weaker on the border security than the failed attempt in 2007. let's start with the money. in 2007, president bush called for meaningful border security. he said the government is
6:34pm
serious about meeting the benchmarks. the bill provides $4.4 million in additional funding, fast forward to 2013 and the gang of 8 proposal. up to $5 billion over ten years, depending upon the effectiveness rate. if anything, they would be spending more. when it comes to border control measures turns out there is a lot of similarity there, as well. like more fencing, for one. the e-verify system, beefed up border patrol agents and more high tech surveillance. those are the similarities. the main difference in what likely has senator sessions so fired up about the so-called bench marks is something called operational control. that was included in the 2007 legislation, not in the 2013 legislation. what is operational control? >> a border that is 100% sealed. and places like north korea, totalitarian states, that is who
6:35pm
has artificial control. >> reporter: one expert says operational control is a hard standard to define, and would almost certainly hold up immigration reform. this year's proposal, by contrast, requires the department of homeland security to submit a plan to congress showing that it started to implement the border security measures mentioned. but immigrants with temporary status still can't apply for a green card until all border security measures have been completed. sessions claimed that legalization comes before enforcement in this plan is completely wrong. >> you hold out the 2007 bill as a gold standard is a false way of looking at the two pieces of legislation. >> now, senator session's office told us the homeland security secretary can actually waive these border security requirements under certain legal scenarios. we asked the department of homeland security if that is in fact, true, and we couldn't get
6:36pm
a definitive answer from them. but the bill is still evolving. and it is hard to know what it mean. at this point, putting the legalization ahead of enforcement seems far from true. i'm sam brock. >> thank you, sam, for breaking it down. still ahead, the unusual use for tylenol. plus, detect reporter scott budman shows us what will help you stay thin. and outside right now, we're seeing a school evening around most of the inner bay, san francisco to oakland. you're seeing a seabreeze-cooled temperature in the 60s now. 71 in san jose, but the temperaturesses over the next fw days, in the 80s. we'll have a look at the seven-day forecast when we come right back.
6:37pm
6:38pm
6:39pm
the mississippi man accused of sending several letters laced with ricin was in court today. he was accused of sending the letters to a mississippi justice official, to president obama and a senator. the senator met him when he performed at a party. he said he was quite entertaining. if convicted, curtis could face up to 15 years in prison. and in health matters tonight, tylenol could help hurt ankles and it seems hurt feelings, too. physical pain, researchers say like a twisted ankle and social pain caused by a fight with a friend or something else triggers the same response in the brain. the university of columbia researchers found the main ingredient in tylenol helps the pain in the same area of the mind. they say they are promising
6:40pm
findings but more studies need to be done. >> okay, meteorologist rob mayeda is here with the forecast. >> if you want to get caught up on the vitamin d, good news, a lot of sunshine, san francisco right now, cool with the seabreeze, we're talking 70s in san francisco. the forecast coming up. and my shirt watches my mood, when you hit rock bottom as a pitcher, matt cain may be able to give us the answer. highlights of the not so great day in milwaukee, plus, the nfl schedule released. more coming up from the sports desk.
6:41pm

investors. they reported a big jump in earnings, shares of google stock rose more than 1 1/2% in trading. and smartest fork in the world? >> that story you will see on nbc bay area, scott budman sat down with the fork that wants to make you happy. >> reporter: it is a little thicker a than you're used to. but the goal of the happy fork is to help you get a little thinner. yes, this is the fork that buzzes if you eat too quickly. we put it to the lunch room so you could get a look first. >> this is a device that people want to be mindful and understand the value of nutrition. >> reporter: the thought being that if you eat more slowly and pay more attention to what you're eating you will be more healthy. full of software and sensors, the happy fork will wirelessly
6:44pm
transit data about what you eat and how you eat to your smartphone. so you can track and improve your eating habits. and just about like everything else in the tech world, the fork is made to be social. >> it is social, we feel it is also the family and the kids, they have to be healthy and need to learn about how we eat. and what nutrition it about. >> weight control is a problem. >> reporter: if you're interested you can even invest in the happy fork. it has its own on-line kick starter campaign and will be expected to cost $99. generating fast buzz to get you to eat slower. in san francisco, scott budman, nbc bay area news. i think that is worth it. >> something else -- >> who the heck is calling me at this hour, i apologize for that. let's get a check of the
